Westmere Primary School

Brazil

Class Teacher: Miss Winn

TA: Mr Gordon

Welcome to Brazil Class!

We are a fabulous Year 2/3 class. This year, our wonderful team will be Miss Winn and Mr Gordon. We are really looking forward to working with the amazing children, which make up Brazil class.

Every week we will be participating in PE.  Please make sure that children are wearing their PE kits (including their blue PE hoodie) on WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY. We ask that long hair be tied back and all jewellery, including earrings, must be removed. PE kits include the house coloured t-shirt and dark shorts. Although in the colder months, a jumper and tracksuit bottoms are recommended. Children should also wear trainers.

We love reading in Brazil Class. As years two and three are especially important years, please listen to your child read every day and ask them questions about the text. We all have our own bookworms to count how many times we read at home. If we read 10/25/50 times at home we receive a certificate. Books need to be brought into school everyday, so that they can be checked and changed.

Homework this year will consist of weekly spellings, English and Maths. We will send home a topic homework project each large term to link with our current class work. Children that complete their projects will receive Westies and house points. We will also invite parents and carers in so children can display their fantastic work.

This term our topic is Flow.

‘From humble beginnings the river flows down the mountain and in to the sea. Pull on your wellies and wade right in… How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the riverside? Which animals make their homes there? Let’s get down to the river bank and find out!’

Our Topic Homework Showcase is on 14th February at 2:45pm, where we invite you in to see all of the wonderful things that we have been doing in our topic this term. We hope to see you there!
